Bhindi Roti and Hyperglycemia: Understanding the connection

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Bhindi Roti is a popular Indian dish that combines okra and flatbread. However, the simple carbs in roti and bhindi can cause a sugar spike, leading to hyperglycemia in some individuals. When we eat carbohydrates, our body breaks them down into glucose, raising the blood glucose level. Hence it is preferred to moderate the food to keep the blood glucose level healthy.

Ways to optimise Bhindi Roti for Better Blood glucose Control
• Try substituting regular flour with low-carbohydrate options like almond or coconut flour.
• Consider adding cooked protein like chicken or paneer instead of bhindi.
• Add a teaspoon of fat like ghee or olive oil to slow down glucose absorption.
• Practice portion control and limit your roti intake to reduce the overall glycemic load of the meal.

Eating Roti made with refined flour and okra can cause a sudden spike in blood glucose levels in individuals. Studies suggest that incorporating protein-rich foods and fibre-rich vegetables with Bhindi Roti can slow down carbohydrate absorption and prevent a sudden rise in blood glucose levels in individuals.
